Don't sleep on Kelly Ripa's latest outfit.

While the Live with Kelly and Ryan host has been going more bold the last few days with strawberry red pencil skirts and pink houndstooth dresses, she stuck with the neutrals in her latest ’fit. But there were still stylish touches to the subdued ensemble that caught our attention.

The most noticeable element was that Ripa capitalized on a past trend by transforming sleepwear into a piece of business casual. The 51-year-old showed up to Live in a black-and-white silk pajama top from Rag & Bone. The Luca pinstriped piece was dressed up by being tucked into a pleated faux leather midi skirt from Maison Margiela. And to round it all out, Ripa added a pair of silver pumps.

The outfit was seen in a video shared to the Live Instagram account early this morning, where the producers said, “We’re live! Tune in now!”

We were able to hunt these pieces down thanks to the website Worn on TV, and we also discovered that this was not the first time Ripa has rocked these articles of clothing.

Ripa wore the same sleek skirt earlier this month, which she paired with a red-and-white floral top.

Meanwhile, she was seen in the same pajama top back in September, which she tucked into a pair of bright blue pants.

If there's one rule we've learned from eyeing Kelly Ripa's fashion over the years, it's that sleepwear can always be transformed into something more formal when you want to switch up your outfits. Meanwhile, Ripa is also the master of taking pieces that she's worn before and mixing them with something totally unexpected.

Thank you for continuing to give us style inspo, Kelly.
